AMG 6.0-LITER V12 BIturbo ENGINE
Automobile enthusiasts with a sense of the spectacular have long held it in high regard - the Mercedes-Benz CL65 AMG. This dream car with the powerful V12 engine and exquisite appointments is synonymous with exclusive performance and exclusive style. The same applies to the revised model which not only features a number of new visual highlights, but also boasts an increase in power from 450 kW (612 hp) to 463 kW (630 hp), as well as a reduction in both fuel consumption and emissions.
The AMG 6.0-litre V12 biturbo engine in the Mercedes-Benz CL65 AMG is one of the most powerful series production engines ever built. The twelve-cylinder engine produces 463 kW (630 hp) from a displacement of 5980 cc, and a maximum torque of 1000 Nm which remains constant between 2300 and 4300 rpm. The torque has been electronically limited to 1000 Nm from a possible 1200 Nm, to make allowances for the powertrain. The unrivalled superiority can be experienced over every single kilometre: the AMG V12 engine is characterised by effortless power delivery in all engine speed ranges and an exciting engine sound, all coupled with supreme refinement. The exceptional power of the AMG twelve-cylinder engine is evident from the performance data: the CL65 AMG accelerates from zero to 100 km/h in 4.4 seconds, and achieves a top speed of 250 km/h (electronically limited).
AMG has made a number of additional detailed enhancements to the AMG 6.0-litre V12 biturbo engine for the new CL65 AMG. The engine experts at AMG achieved the increase in output from 450 kW (612 hp) to 463 kW (630 hp) thanks to new Exhaust gas turbochargers. The inlet diameter of the compressor housing and also the Exhaust gas ducts have been enlarged, and the resulting increase in air throughput, together with the new engine electronics, has resulted in an increase of 13 kW (28 hp). The maximum charge-air pressure is 1.5 bars.
Despite the increase in output, it has still been possible to reduce fuel consumption and Exhaust emissions: the NEDC-combined fuel consumption of the Mercedes-Benz CL65 AMG is now 14.3 litres per 100 kilometres, which equates to a reduction of 0.2 litre per 100 km. The CO2 emissions of 334 grams per kilometre are 3.5 percent lower than those of the previous model (346 g/km).
The reduction in fuel consumption is achieved thanks to the new engine electronics as well as the generator management: the kinetic energy generated during each drive phase of the engine and also when braking is used to charge the battery, and not just left to generate heat as would otherwise be the case. In all other operating areas, management of both the on-board electrical system and generator enables the generator to be maintained at a low voltage level.
New piston rings, a modified oil pump and use of a superior coating on the catalytic converters also contribute towards reducing raw Exhaust emissions as part of the package of measures. As a result, the Mercedes-Benz CL65 AMG immediately fulfils the current EU5 emissions standards as well as all of the requirements of the US markets (LEV II standard, on-board diagnostics II and lambda sensor diagnostics).

W140 Mercedes Benz S500 S600 Coupe 2 Owner CLEAN CL S 500 S 600 420 320 CL500
1 Owner car guy AKA Nathan Wratislaw here and this W140 is one of My
favorites it is a 1995 Mercedes Benz S500 Coupe or CL500. Its a Great car
and has only had 2 owners with only 80,000 original miles You will
absolutly LOVE this car if a S500C is what you are looking for. I sell A
LOT of 600 500 420 and 320 cars and the W140 is pretty much the top of the
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Development on the W140 began in 1981, originally set for an autumn 1989
release. From 1982 to 1986 several designs were reviewed, until December
1986 when the final design was approved. Several prototypes were tested
onwards from early 1987. A delay was made to accommodate a V12 engine and
resulted in the final prototype being completed in June 1990. Pilot
production models were made from July 1990 to January 1991. In 1991, to
compete with the Lexus LS 400, a series of additional features were rushed
for the launch of the W140. The W140 introduced innovations such as
double-pane window glazing, power-assisted closing for doors and boot lid,
electric windows which lowered back down upon encountering an obstruction,
rear-parking markers which rose from the rear wings (discontinued on later
vehicles, and replaced with sonar-assisted parking) and a heating system
which, if desired, continued to emit warm air after the engine was turned
off. For details like this, the W140 is often known as the last Mercedes to
be "overengineered," a Mercedes trait that was costing the company in
product delays and overbudgeting. According to Motor Trend, this action
reportedly caused project cost overruns and resulted in the departure of
Wolfgang Peter, Daimler-Benz's chief engineer. The vehicle is believed
to have cost Mercedes-Benz over $1 billion to develop. For the consumer,
the W140 cost a considerable 25 percent more than its predecessor, the
The W140 was to feature air-suspension as an option, but it was dropped
shortly before launch because Mercedes was still perfecting the technology
at the time. Mercedes chose to launch air-suspension in the next generation
S-Class in 2000. The W140 instead used a hydropneumatic rear suspension,
first introduced on the W126 to be used on the S500 and S600 models.
Following the mid-year facelift in 1994, Mercedes-Benz made Electronic
Stability Control an optional fixture to both sedan and coupé body styles
in the W140 range. Both the sedan and coupé body styles were equipped with
Acceleration Slip Regulation (ASR) as a standard feature.
Like its predecessor, the car was available in two wheelbase lengths (short
W140 and long V140) along with the C140 coupé. In 1992, a new 6 litre 402
engine joined the lineup for the first time with the 600SEL and 600SEC. A
"V12" badge was affixed to the C-pillar.
In 1993, the 402 horsepower V12 engine was
slightly detuned to 389 horsepower to comply with
tighter emission control regulations in the United States and Europe. The
V8 models were tuned down from 322 horsepower to 315 horsepower.
The W140 600SEL was available with wooden rear ash tray covers,
wood/leather shift knob, leather dashboard and a suede headliner, unlike
the V8 and inline 6-cylinder models. Following the facelift in 1994, the
rebadged S600 was updated with a wood/leather steering wheel, a V12 badge
on the wood/leather shifter, double needle stitching all over the interior
and two tone nappa leather seating -- further distinctions from its lower
Following the new Mercedes-Benz tradition of mid-life facelifts (starting
with the W126 in 1986), the W140 received a minor facelift in 1994. The
clear turn signal indicator lenses on the front were the most obvious
change, as was the grille including a new and distinctive one for S600's.
Headlamps were fitted with separate low H7, H1 fog, and high H1 beam
reflectors in 1995, pre 1995 used an H4 bulb and H3 for the fog lamp. In
April 1995, "Parktronic" replaced the parking guiders on the rear boot lid.
In June 1996, the two tone exterior bumpers were painted to match the upper
portions of the vehicles and the rear indicator lenses became clear.
Height of the W140 production models varied between years (1992-94 W140
Sedan: 58.7 in; 1992-94 V140 Sedan: 58.9 in; 1995-96 W140 Sedan: 58.4 in;
1997-99 V140 Sedan: 58.3 in; C140 Coupe: 56.7 in; 1997-99 W140 Sedan: 58.5
► Mercedes Future Truck 2025 (Autonomous Driving Demo)
The Mercedes-Benz Future Truck 2025 constitutes a revolution in
efficiency, safety and networking, a revolution for road traffic and its
infrastructure, for professional driving and for the road transport sector.
This is not a new truck, but rather the key element in the interconnected
transport system of the future. It is being developed as part of the
"Shaping Future Transportation" initiative by Daimler Trucks to conserve
resources and reduce emissions of all kinds. Other aims are to ensure the
highest possible level of traffic safety and to Boost networking with intelligent data
management considerably for tailor-made vehicle and service solutions.
The prototype demonstrated the exciting capabilities of the
Future Truck 2025 back in the summer at speeds of up to 80 km/h in
realistic traffic situations on a section of the A14 motorway in Magdeburg,
Germany. Now the thrilling exterior and interior of that same vehicle are
One of the most interesting questions on the subject of autonomous driving
is the time horizon envisaged for its realisation. In purely technical
terms, turning it into reality on the roads is already feasible within
around five years. In terms of passenger car development cycles, a possible
start is envisaged in 2020. Owing to the more complex factors for heavy
commercial vehicles, the time horizon for such vehicles will, however, be
rather longer – realistically implementation is possible within ten
years, also in view of the legal considerations that still remain to be
The introduction of autonomous driving will not happen digitally from one
day to the next, as development is progressing in a gradual manner:
evolutionary stages are necessary to revolutionise goods haulage on the
roads. In the coming years, new and improved assistance systems will
continue to pave the clearly set-out way to autonomous driving.

2012 BMW 1-Series Coupe
THE 2012 BMW 1 SERIES COUPE
Targeted Innovations Update BMW 1 Series Coupe.
Woodcliff Lake, NJ -- BMW today announced several modifications to the 2012
BMW 1 Series Coupe that accentuate efficiency and premium quality. The
unmistakable profile of the 1 Series Coupe, which represents the purest
expression of BMW DNA is now sharper than ever. The new design of the front
fascia on the 128i includes BMW's innovative Air Curtain that counters
turbulence near the wheel arches and so reduces the aerodynamic resistance
of the vehicle. New exterior design accents have been incorporated into the
headlight and tail light clusters. In the interior, new switches and
controls have a more refined look and feel. The updated 1 Series Coupe will
go on sale this Spring.
In 2008 BMW introduced the 1 Series to the US, an authentic performance
coupe that drew inspiration from the iconic BMW 2002 model of some 40 years
ago. As perhaps the next BMW legend, the 1 Series Coupe represents the core
BMW philosophy of pure performance, compact dimensions, and premium design.
By combining sporty rear-wheel-drive dynamics, agile handling, powerful
engines and seating for four, the 2012 1 Series Coupe continues to reinvent
the niche that the legendary BMW 2002 created.
Powerful engines, the rear-wheel drive typical of the brand and
inspirational agility make the BMW 1 Series Coupe stand out from the crowd.
It possesses characteristics unique in the compact premium vehicle segment.
With these updates, the BMW 1 Series Coupe develops further as one of the
most desirable Ultimate Driving Machines® in the business. Two versions
are available: the 128i Coupe and the 135i Coupe. Each has been enhanced to
improve convenience and comfort for the 1 Series' fourth model year.
Powered by a 3.0-liter, 230 horsepower inline-6 engine
that generates 200 lb-ft of torque, the 128i Coupe features BMW's
Valvetronic throttle-less intake technology and aluminum/magnesium
construction-core elements of BMW's EfficientDynamics.
The 2012 BMW 135i features BMW's newest, 3.0-liter inline-6 engine.
Equipped with a single, twin-scroll turbocharger and BMW's revolutionary Valvetronic
throttle-less intake technology, the engine produces 300 horsepower and 300 lb-ft of
torque. Referred to internally as the "N55", the engine reaches peak torque
at 1,200 rpm and maintains peak torque all the way to 5,000 rpm. With High
Precision direct gasoline injectors, optimum performance and fuel
efficiency are achieved with even faster engine response across the entire
engine speed range. For the 135i Coupe, acceleration from 0-60 mph is
accomplished with the standard 6-speed manual transmission in 5.1 seconds.
The 135i can be equipped with BMW's 7-speed Double Clutch Transmission
(DCT), as featured on the BMW Z4 Roadster. Equipped with DCT, the 135i
Coupe will accomplish the 0-60 mph sprint in a scorching 5.0 seconds. A
6-speed Steptronic automatic remains optional on the 128i. So equipped, the
128i Coupe runs 0-60 mph in 6.7 seconds, or 6.1 seconds with the standard
6-speed manual transmission.
